. israeli government officials tell reuters this was a terrorist attack. the cease-fire negotiations between israel and hamas are believed to be entering their final stages, but whether it's bus bombings, air strikes or rocket attacks, fighting between the two sides have not let up. so far 140 palestinians and 5 israelis have been killed. egyptian officials are mediating the truce talks. a hamas representative tells nhk the palestinian group is pushing for israel to lift its economic blockade of gaza. the local media report israeli negotiators are willing to do that, but only once the cease-fire is in effect for a certain period of time. discussions are also reportedly under way about the possibility of getting egypt and the united states to establish a framework to monitor the truce. an israeli spokesperson has said his country wants talks to succeed. he says it is still prepared to send soldiers into gaza. a top hamas military commander is warning israel it will pay a heavy price if it launches a ground operation. people on both sides have spent more than a week in fear of another attack.

a normal life. >> so this report that's now moving on the reuters -- from the reuters news service quoting officials as saying that egypt has brokered a cease-fire agreement between hamas and israel, you say -- >> no deal done yet. our strikes against hamas continue. we're hitting them hard until we see an end of rockets launched on israel. now, i understand why hamas is saying what they're doing. we're hitting their command and control, we're hitting their arsenals, hitting their missile launching facilities, historying their communications. we're hitting them hard because they have been shooting at our people, they've been targeting israelis and they still target israelis. i understand they want a time-out, but if they're interested in a time-out just to regroup and to come and shoot back at israelis a week from now after they've rested, we're not interested in that. what we want to see, we want this ended once and for good. we want a new reality where israeli civilians no longer have to live in fear of these rockets. >> is it fair to say though, even though there's no agreement yet, you

told you what the palestinians are saying. all i can add to what ayman said is reuters, the reuters news agency, the palestinian reporter for reuters said he spoke to a palestinian relative of the dead man at the scene at the time. and he said the dead man approached the fence, tried to put a hamas flag on the fence, was warned. the israeli fired warning shots into the air three times and then shot the man in the head. so i think it's pretty claer that we need to wait and see what really happened. the palestinian relative of the dead man who says he was at the scene at the time seems a convincing witness. we'll have to wait and see whether or not this is considered in the end to be a violation of the ceasefire or not because, of course, the ceasefire is all about missiles and airplanes and rockets. there are incidents along the fence all the time. to put this one incident in the framework of breaking the ceasefire is giving more importance 0 than it really has, bad as it is to kill a guy in the head for putting a flag on the fence, if that's what happened. >> okay, martin fletcher,

this coming from hamas to the reuters news agency that there is a cease-fire deal about to be announced, that cease-fire would take effect at midnight local time, which is just about four and a half hours from now, and that is when hamas says they will stop firing islamic jihad which is also in the gaza strip would stap firing and the israelis would stop their attack. that also means there is no israeli ground attack coming toward gaza. that of course had been the big fear that there would be a massive escalation. so far the death toll inside the gaza strip well over 120 palestinians killed and a number of israelis killed here at least three people. in the past couple of hours we've had a massive barrage of hamas rockets into israel overwhelming the iron dome missile direct system, direct hits at a number of places and about a dozen people injured so far inside israel in the past couple of hours. you would think in the leading hours to a cease-fire the fire would diminish. in the middle east it's just the opposite in the sense that there is a very heightened amount of firing on both sid
